Purpose

The Colorado Supporting Healthy Minds and Youth Resiliency program provides grants for projects designed to build social-emotional skills and create supportive environments to improve resiliency for young people facing barriers to mental well-being. Projects should address behavioral health inequities and activities for prevention and early intervention with young people facing the greatest risks of anxiety, depression, suicide, and substance use, as well as changes within their environment to support resiliency.

The Colorado Health Foundation encourages applicants that include participants from the following populations:

  • Rural and frontier communities
  • Youth in and aging out of foster care
  • Youth from immigrant, refugee, and mixed-status families
  • Youth involved in the juvenile justice system

Projects should demonstrate the following:

  • Include the same group of youth meeting over multiple sessions for a planned learning purpose to foster strong relationships and sustained learning
  • Promote ability to cope by addressing one or more category of social-emotional practice and skill:
    • Emotion management
    • Empathy
    • Teamwork
    • Responsibility
    • Initiative
    • Problem solving
  • Program components are adapted to meet the needs of the context and population-served when using an evidence-based or promising program
